Stinging Insects

Portland Oregon & Vancouver Washington

Yellow Jackets , Wasps and Hornet – Extermination and Removal

Stinging insects can be both nuisances and painful, and getting rid of them from your property can be just as painful. Stinging pests tend to come out in the spring and die off around the beginning of the fall; just when everyone’s going outside to enjoy the beautiful weather! While most are passive creatures, some can be quite aggressive towards humans, and all have no problem defending their nests from perceived threats.

Stinging Insect Nests

Nests tend to spring up on people, and most of these insects are fond of making their homes in human dwellings. Nests can be found in bushes and in eaves in homes, which means that some of these pests will invariably make their way indoors. If you or a family member is allergic to stinging pests, having them anywhere can be intimidating; an allergic reaction can range from burning and redness at the sting site to anaphylactic shock!

What Attracts Stinging Insects

While it is common knowledge that most stinging insects are attracted to the nectar in flowers, it might surprise you to know that most stinging insects enjoy sugary drinks, like soda and juice, as meal sources as well. Some are known to prey on other insects, and even go through garbage to find their food! It is no wonder they like to make themselves at home around a house!
